This Friday we are opening Home. We will hold Cinderella, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, and The Second Best Marigold Hotel. We were only going to show Marigold Hotel for one week but it did so well, we have to hold it for one more week. Run All Night will end this Thursday but the caveat is that projector broke down and we are waiting on parts so it most likely won’t be repaired by Thursday. I hope to get it up and running by Friday.
